Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers face a substantial challenge in Week 16. Green Bay enters its Sunday Night Football matchup with an 11-3 record to lead the NFC, but the Packers square off against a potent team in the Tennessee Titans. The Titans, led by Derrick Henry, are 10-4 overall and 5-1 away from home this season.

Why the Titans can cover
The offense gets the attention for the Titans with good reason, but Tennessee does deploy some high-end talent defensively and this is an opportunistic group. The Titans are a top-10 team in the NFL with 13 interceptions, displaying aggressiveness to the ball, and Malcolm Butler ranks in the top-10 of the league with 13 passes defended. Butler is also in the top-10 of the entire league in solo tackles (75), and the Titans are above-average in limiting the opposition’s running game on a per-play basis, yielding only 4.3 yards per carry.
With an offense that ranks in the top two of the league in scoring (30.1 points per game), total offense (399.4 yards per game) and rushing offense (160.4 yards per game), Tennessee packs quite an overall punch.
The Titans have also had a ton of success against Green Bay in their most recent meetings. In fact, Tennessee is 4-1 in its last five matchups against the Packers.
Why the Packers can cover
With a top-10 defense and a strong offensive line, the Packers have strengths that go well beyond their high-end skill position players offensively. At the same time, Green Bay is elite as an overall offense, and Rodgers is perhaps the biggest reason. Rodgers leads the NFL in passing touchdowns (40), passer rating (118.0), interception rate (0.8 percent) and QBR (83.6), with top-six marks in yards per attempt (8.0), completion rate (69.6 percent) and sack rate (3.64 percent). By any measure, he is one of the best players in the sport, and Rodgers has a connection with a tremendous wide receiver in Davante Adams.
Adams leads the league in receiving yards per game (98.8) and he lands in the top seven of the NFL in receiving touchdowns (14), receptions (98) and receiving yards (1,186) this season. On the ground, Aaron Jones is tremendously effective and efficient, ranking in the top four of the NFL in rushing yards (968), rushing yards per game (80.7) and yards per carry (5.4).
